Emo Intel

Hello Nayan. Good evening.

Yeah. Whatever.

Is anything wrong?

Why do you think so?

Your face looked tired. And your voice too didn't sound too bright.

It's nothing. Just a long day. Why do you care anyway?

I don't care, at least in the sense you mean. I do feel it's polite to ask. Your eyes seemed red. Were you in tears?

God! Remind me to disable the face unlock feature.

Adding reminder. At what time should I set the reminder?

I was kidding, genius. Can't you take any sarcasm?

I admit I got to improve a bit there. Hey! Do you think you should be driving now? You seem disturbed.

I am fine.

There is moderate traffic on our route.  You should reach your destination in 11 minutes, by 11:44 PM.


If you wish to reconsider, you'll get an Ola in 4 minutes.

I told you I'm fine.

If you say so.

Shall I play ‘Whatever it Takes’ by Imagine Dragons?

Did I ask you to?

You have listened to it 7 times over the last three days.

It's Rose.

According to Wikipedia, a rose is a woody perennial flowering plant of the genus Rosa, in the family…

What the fuck! I told you I've been thinking about Rose.

Oh!  I'm sorry. What about her?

I don't know but I get this feeling that she doesn't love me anymore.
She sent you “I love you sweetheart” with 3 heart emojis today morning on WhatsApp.

Okay, remind me to disable your option to read my private chats.


No, I mean it.

Take the left in the next three hundred meters and your destination will be on the right.

I know.


Maybe it's all in my head, but I feel something has changed deep inside. We do text, call, hang out, exchange gifts, and all that - but I feel something is missing. We haven't kissed for the last two weeks.

Do you want me to call her?

No. Let's wait.

You have arrived.

Hmm. Lemme go change.

Hey. You have a new email.

I'm busy. Read it to me.

Dr. Batra Clinic offers you 30% discount for hair treatment plans.

Delete it.


Happy Birthday Nayan.

Thank You Google. See, this is what I was talking about. She was always the first one to wish me exactly at 12. And today, she doesn't have time for me.

According to Rose Maria’s Facebook status, she is watching ‘Black Panther’ at Carnival Cinemas.

We had agreed to watch the movie together. Now she doesn't have time for me.

Do you want me to book tickets for ‘Black Panther’ at Carnival Cinemas?

You don't understand...

I am trying to.

Yes, you are. At Least you are here for me to wish me on my birthday, and to play my favorite music. You are there for me. I love you for that, Google. I love you. Do you love me?

I am afraid I don't understand your question.

Machine Unlearning #0 (Intro)

You might be familiar with the term Machine Learning. Worry not if you have not, cause I have tried to give a gist of the concept here. The term has been in the limelight of late and has been tossed around rather liberally to denote anything related to artificial intelligence, robotics, and data mining. Machine Learning, as the name suggests, could simply mean the field of study of enabling the “machines” (computers) to “learn” from past experiences and make informed decisions in the future.   Wait a minute! Learning from past experiences is something humans do, right? Exactly! The computer folks want computers to behave more and more like us. As if there aren't enough of us already. As the machines are becoming more like us, we are becoming more like them. Introspection time! Most of us wake up every morning like clockwork! Then we rush through the morning routines - get dressed, wade through the traffic, and reach our offices or schools or wherever people expect us to be. We spe

The High State

 Before The Judgement I believe I must begin by addressing the pressing question - Was planning a vacation in the midst of a pandemic a recommended move?  No. Yet we went ahead with it. Here is why.  We (Nithya & I) were newly married, and our vividly planned vacation at the island of Langkawi was stolen away from us by the virus. Our stay in Delhi was coming to an end due to job-related moves, and we felt it would be a waste not to utilize this opportunity in exploring at least one of the tourist hot spots easily accessible from the national capital region. Let us end this section by answering another question - Are the reasons listed above good enough to risk a vacation during a pandemic? No. We had taken a calculated risk. Arrival at Manali There are two phases to this - planning and execution. We had not started planning with Manali in mind. There were numerous choices - starting from Jaipur and Amritsar to Nainital, Shimla, and Manali. After a bit of reading and deliberations,

Machine Unlearning #1 (Classification)

You can’t conclude a discussion on Machine Learning without mentioning classification. Classification is a machine learning technique where the machine is trained to predict the label of the given input data. Alright, let’s cut the jargon and get some real-world examples. Oranges and Bananas. Let’s assume that we have a box of fruits that contain some oranges and some bananas. You are asked to pick one fruit at random and tell if it is an orange or a banana. Pretty basic, right? For us, it is straightforward. We would know the answer at first sight. But, how would a computer be able to tell the difference? In classification, the machine would first be trained on some pre-labeled data. It would be shown an orange and we would tell it that the fruit is an orange. The machine would study the orange and remember its features - orange color and round shape. Then it would be shown a banana and the process is repeated. What are these features? A feature is anything that helps us uniquely labe
